The March 23rd Lunar Eclipse will peak at 5am PST and is one of the most significant astrological events of the year. In fact, we will all be dealing with this energy in different ways over the next few months.
March really is a powerful month of growth and transformation and it is likely you will start to notice a shift and changing direction in your life following this Lunar Eclipse.
Lunar Eclipses are really like super charged Full Moon’s. They help to bring us clarity, direction and the ability to “harvest” all that we have been working on. They can also bring endings, but these endings are often beneficial to our spiritual growth and development.
This Full Moon Eclipse falls in the sign of Libra, which is all about balance, compromise and harmony. Symbolically, Libra is the keeper of the scales and ensures that we are not only looking after our own needs but also the needs of others.
The energy of Libra is to truly work on building relationships and learning how to fit in with the world around you. Libra ultimately rules the relationships that you have with yourself, others and the world.
This means that whatever challenges come up for you during this Eclipse are really going to be helping you to get in touch with your inner and outer world.
This will help you to better know your path forward, and to know whether you want to keep heading in the same direction or change course.
The Solar Eclipse earlier this month on the 8th helped to birth the way for something new. Now, this Lunar Eclipse is helping us to determine what we want this new chapter to look like.
Are we happy with the relationships that we have cultivated? Are we happy with the relationship that we have with the world? Are we happy with the relationship that we have with ourselves?
You may have been feeling this energy brewing in your life since September 2015. This is because Eclipses always follow cycles, and this pattern has really been ongoing for some time now.
The good news is that this is the last Eclipse in this series. This is the last Eclipse in Libra for some time, so it is likely that we are all really wrapping up the necessary lessons surrounding this energy.
This means that you really need to pay attention to what comes up for you during this Eclipse, and to see if you can really work on making peace with those old wounds and pains of the past.
When you embrace the energy of an Eclipse, and allow it to mold and shape your life, the effects are usually very positive. When you resist the Eclipse and when you resist the changes it brings, that is when the Eclipse can wreak a bit of havoc over your life.
Lunar Eclipses are not as scary or as foreboding as some people make them out to be, really they are amazing points of transformation and assistance from the Universe. In many ways, Eclipses help us to know the right path and help us to know the way forward.
If something ends on an Eclipse, or if something is taken away, it is usually for good reason as Eclipses always put us where we are meant to be.
For this Eclipse, this is particularly true if a relationship comes to an end or you start to review and assess how you allow other people to treat you.
Asserting your self-worth, knowing your value and knowing how to respect others are all key themes of this Full Moon Eclipse.
You may also be encouraged to assess other relationships in your life, such as your relationships with money, your relationship with your work life, or the relationship that you have cultivated with your goals and dreams.
If things have felt uncertain or you have been unsure about how to approach or change a certain area of your life, this Eclipse may also give you the motivation to move forward.
The other planetary aspects surrounding this Eclipse are fairly gentle. In fact, they really will help you to make a clear cut decision in your life and will also help give you a boost of confidence.
Decisiveness and clear logical thinking are also going to be beneficial at this time. This is not a time to get lost in the clouds of your mind. Be logical, be practical and use this energy to make the best decision forward for yourself.
Libra truly is the planet of compromise, but if we continually compromise ourselves in order to make other people happy or because society tells us to, eventually we start to cause the scales to be out of balance.
If we allow this energy in, this Eclipse is going to help us balance the scales once more and to see things from a totally new perspective.
This Eclipse has been a long time coming, and will be the last Eclipse in Libra for quite sometime. The effects of this Eclipse may also be felt until the next Full Moon in April, so stay open to the signs and messages the Universe delivers to you.
